Mondays during Lent: Why no noon Mass?

If you check the mass schedule during Lent, you’ll notice that we are not offering a noon Mass on Mondays, although we have done so in the past. That decision was largely left to me and I wanted to explain why. Father Blanda is out on Mondays, so normally the Associate Pastor would celebrate both the noon and the 5:30 pm Masses. As many of you know, I am teaching 7th grade religion at Catholic High this year. Due to the time of my class, I cannot regularly celebrate the noon Mass and be adequately prepared to teach. So, we will not have a noon Mass on Mondays during Lent.

I know that this might be frustrating, but I appreciate your patience and understanding. I also ask that you allow this shortcoming to be motivation to increase our prayer and support for vocations so that we might have more priests to serve our schools and parishes.

Vocation's Dinner at St. Peter's

Prayer for Seminarians

O Lord Jesus Christ, great High Priest, I pray that you call many worthy souls to your holy priesthood. Enlighten the Bishop and Vocation Director in the choice of candidates, the Spiritual Directors in molding them, and the professors instructing them. Lead the seminarians daily in your unerring footsteps, so that they may become priests who are models of purity, possessors of wisdom, and heroes of sacrifice. May they be steeped in humility and aflame with love for God and man, apostles of your glory and sanctifiers of souls. Mary, Queen of the Clergy, pray for us. Amen


St Peter’s Rookies & Youth Group’s event was held at Azalea Estates Nursing Home in New Iberia, where the youth learned about Lent and the Works of Mercy. The residents of Azalea Estates were brought a lot of joy from St. Peter's youth. The kids and residents play Bingo and had a cookie social.

Diapers and peanut butter were also delivered for the Disch-DeClouet Social Service Center.
